Was down in MD visiting friends this weekend and after making a quick stop at American Dream on Friday on the ride down (threw a couple pictures on FB), I started the ride back with a stop at American

Wow. It is hilarious that Six Flags America is opening a whole month early, and BGW is now year-round, and Kings Dominion isn't opening until MAY? I think I'll join Coasterbill in laughing at Ced

Well I was there this past Sunday; temperatures were about 45 degrees which kept the crowds minimal. Everything (except for Ragin Cajun) was one train operations. Early in the season, I was surpr

^It was pretty much all of the Major ones give or take a few characters.

 

I took a brief visit to the park today and it was pretty crowded. It happened to be a company day for Lindsay automotive. To make maters worse Halfpipe, Zoomazon Falls, Bonzai Pipelines and the slides at the pool were all closed. The wave pool was also closed for an extended period of time due to someone getting sick. Around 5:30 a very weak storm rolled in and drove a decent portion of the crowd out of the park. This led to the dry park being much more manageable. Outside of atrocious single train ops on ROAR, everything was fine in the dry park.

 

BTW, the electric work seems to be done.

^ I politely disagree. I believe they are putting the skywarps in parks with minimal space and space is no issue at SFA.

 

Who knows what the real thought process is in reality. Think about it... These are small flat rides that only have one train. The capacity is low. So these may do better at smaller parks like a Discovery Kingdom or America. Also, lets keep in mind the Skywarp added to Discovery Kingdom is one of the first in the USA. They may want to see if the public is even going to be interested. They may since its new.

 

Also, this park may have a lot of land but how much of that land is actually available for turning into midway? That is something that most of us do not know.

It's not from their social media. It was something found in park.

 

Edit: Another Tombstone was supposedly added today. No photographic evidence but if I had to guess it was probably for Two-Face.

Previous post (by the park) indicated a Firebird name/theme. Current addition of tombstones in the park seems to suggest a ride may be leaving... Firebird can represent the 1960s car or maybe even the mythical phoenix... but the fire bird is also a prominent figure in Mardi Gras culture... I know no one "likes" this idea, but what if the clues are point to RMC Wild One to be renamed "Fire Bird"? I mean, they've done significantly less repair work on Wild One as they did on ROAR and the ride has been dying for a paint job (which id didn't even get for it's 100th anniversary)... you can't argue that if they did RMC Wild One (as tragic as that would be), the new ride would likely be the best coaster in the park...

That is Apocalypse behind the fence... looks like it's either Floorless Apocalypse or they are getting rid of Apocalypse altogether (RMC Raptor... please? Could probably reuse the same station!)

Or they're theming it to Terminator, like SFMM's Apocalypse used to be.

Who knows... their social media presence is terrible. We learned that with the "teasing" of Wahoo River.

And for everyone talking about a potential RMC, please stop. I'm literally about to choke from laughing so hard.

I actually thought Iron Eagle was a decent flat ride, I wonder why they junked it all those years ago?

 

And the idea of RMC conversion for Wild One . . . umm, wouldn't that invalidate the ACE Coaster Landmark award WO got this year? (For what it's worth, said plaque isn't in front of the ride anymore)

 

Floor-less Apocalypse; meh - RMC Raptor - Schwing!

Regarding Floorless Apocalypse; I highly doubt they would invest that type of money into this park. I seriously expect some bullsh*t for the waterpark or a family flat and I can't wait for the comments.

I hate stuff like this because it makes people right for the wrong reasons. I assure you that the park doesn't even remotely care about that ACE plaque, but at the same time they're never going to RMC that ride because

 

a) Couldn't they RMC Roar and just clone Joker?

 

and

 

b) Their CapEx budget is eight dollars. They're not RMCing anything.
